Notable practitioners

Benita Yu of Slaughter and May's Hong Kong office remains a trusted adviser to Chinese corporates on their IPOs.

She is very nice, patient and flexible in handling cases, rather than dogmatically transplanting the laws or rules."

A client describes him as "very technically strong, very helpful and responsive."
